Mega Man (1987) review
by ItsAHobby

Pretty difficult. Mega Man is, like, Mega unforgiving, Man.
Sometimes feels unfair or designed just to be unfun, but mostly the core Mega Man concept is there. You shoot, jump and pick powerups from bosses.
The bosses designs are simple as they're all just.. like... Man, but in different costumes. The enemies are pretty unique though. I didn't feel accomplished or anything when I killed the bosses. 
The cool thing is, even if you "Game Over" you still keep the bosses weapons, so you've got that going for you!
Can someone explain how Mega Man suit works? Why does he have his underwear above his pants?

Overall, rating out of 100:
Story: 0
They don't tell you anything.

Gameplay: 30
Pew pew pew.

Graphics: 10
The graphics aren't really anything special, considering other releases of the same time.

Sound/Music: 30
They're REALLY GOOD.

This leaves Mega Man with a Mega 70 out of 400! Just wait till you get to Super Blaster Mega Man XVLII

7/10 - My fingers hurt.

Is a fun game but in order to beat it you need to gain some really good reflexes and pass through some bullshit stuff, overall is entertaining and it has a very hard but cool boss (Yellow Devil). I think it holds well to this day.
